Is the stock market still a good investment after its crash?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Peter Stephens Peter Stephens | Friday, 10th April, 2020 Image source: Getty Images Is the stock market still a good investment after its crash? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

The stock market’s performance in the first quarter of 2020 was exceptionally disappointing. It experienced a crash on a scale that has not been seen since the global financial crisis. In the short run, further volatility seems highly likely. This could mean that stock prices deliver further declines.However, now may not be the right time to ditch stocks and invest elsewhere. The stock market experiences crashes and bear markets on a fairly regular basis, and has always recovered from them.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Therefore, now may be the right time buy stocks, rather than seek safety in other assets such as cash and bonds.Short-term risksClearly, there are significant risks facing the world economy in the near term. A wide range of countries across the world have put in place restrictions on movement that could create extremely difficult trading conditions for a wide range of industries. Investors are factoring in the prospect of severe declines in profitability during 2020, which may lead them to demand even wider margins of safety from equities.The end result of this could be that stock markets display further volatility in the coming months. This may mean that holding stocks is a risky move which includes large paper losses at times.Recovery potentialHowever, for investors who are able to take a long-term view of their portfolio, now could be an excellent time to buy stocks. Certainly, paper losses are not something that any investor wishes to experience. But it is difficult, if not impossible, to find the very bottom of the stock market’s decline. This has been the case in all previous market crashes, with it only being obvious after a recovery has taken hold that the stock market was trading at its lowest point.Therefore, buying a range of high-quality stocks now and being prepared to hold them for many years could be a worthwhile strategy. It is unlikely to produce high returns in the near term, but the track record of the world economy and global equities shows that they have always recovered from their most difficult circumstances to post new record highs.At the present time, a stock market recovery may seem unlikely. But, the same could have been said during any of its previous crashes. Ultimately, a recovery in the coming years seems likely, and investors buying undervalued stocks now may be the biggest beneficiaries.Selling stocksSome investors may feel that selling stocks now and holding assets such as cash and bonds is a worthwhile move. They may outperform stocks in the near term, but over the long run low interest rates mean that their after-inflation returns could be negative.As such, taking a long-term view of the stock market and seeking to capitalise on its cyclicality could be the most logical move for investors at the present time. More pain may be ahead, but this is likely to give way to a recovery. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Summer Tours: South Africa v Wales Preview

first_imgAll you need to know about the Test between South Africa and Wales in Washington South Africa v Wales PreviewSouth Africa and Wales are kicking off the 2018 summer tours with a fixture in Washington DC – and Warren Gatland’s side are aiming for a hat-trick of victories against the Springboks.Wales beat South Africa 24-22 in Cardiff last November and 27-13 the year before – and should they win in America it will be their first victory over the Boks outside of the Welsh capital.Both coaches have picked new-look sides for this fixture in America, which falls outside the official international window, as they look to build depth ahead of the 2019 World Cup.Here’s what you need to know about the match…What’s the big team news?Cardiff Blues scrum-half Tomos Williams will make his Test debut for Wales, who will be captained for the first time by Ellis Jenkins.Related: A Q&A with Tomos WilliamsDebutant: Tomos Williams puts in a box-kick for Cardiff Blues (Getty Images)George North is picked at outside-centre – his fourth start in midfield for Wales – while Aaron Wainwright could also earn his first cap if he comes on as a replacement.Rhys Patchell will undergo a fitness test before the game and if he doesn’t come through that successfully, Gareth Davies will take his place on the bench.There are seven uncapped players in the South Africa starting team – and a further six on the bench.Among those making their Test debuts from the off are wing Makazole Mapimpi, who scored ten tries in 13 games for the Cheetahs in the Guinness Pro14 before earning a Super Rugby contract with the Sharks, and flanker Kwagga Smith, who so impressed for the Barbarians against New Zealand last year.Danger man: Makazole Mapimpi in action for the Sharks (Getty Images)The other starters earning their first caps are Travis Ismaiel, Andre Esterhuizen, Ivan van Zyl, Jason Jenkins and Ox Nche, while the uncapped Akker van der Merwe, Thomas du Toit, Marvin Orie, Sikhumbuzo Notshe, Embrose Papier and Robert du Preez are all on the bench.What have the coaches said?

South Africa director of rugby Rassie Erasmus: “As coaches, we are tremendously excited about the prospect of seeing some of our best young players getting the opportunity to play at this level.“Wales have a very solid and effective kicking strategy and their cohesive forward and set-piece play are some of their main strong points.”Wales head coach Warren Gatland: “Everything we are doing is geared for the World Cup in 15 months’ time and the next three matches are a hugely important part of our development.“This weekend is an opportunity for players to build on their Test experience and lay a marker down for the jersey and for the position going forward.”Downtime: Wales take a tour of the United States Naval Academy (Huw Evans Agency)Any interesting statistics?Tom Prydie is winning his first cap for five years. The wing, who made his debut as an 18-year-old in 2010, last played for Wales against Tokyo in June 2013.The Springboks starting line-up has just 134 caps-worth of experience.South Africa wing Travis Ismaiel will not only be celebrating his Test debut against Wales but his 26th birthday.Wales have won only four of their 33 Tests against South Africa. They have drawn once and lost 28 times.If Robert du Preez comes on as a replacement, it will be the first time that three sons of a former Springbok (Robert senior) have also been capped by South Africa. Jean-Luc, Dan and Robert junior would also become the fourth set of three Springbok brothers.George North, with 73 Wales caps, has made 20 more Test appearances than the entire Springboks back-line.When does it kick off and is it on TV?The match is being played at the Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington DC, which has a capacity of 45,596.

Despite being 250 miles north from the fighting in Goma, the Université Anglicane du Congo experienced its first attack since its opening two years ago. The Revd Canon Daniel Sabiti Tibafa, the university vice chancellor, has sent the following report:“Yes, the morning night of 22 December 2013 at around 2:00 am, armed people broke the door of our house threatening to kill all of us if we did not have any money on us. They forced the door with heavy stones…and the guns to destroy the lock of the door. In the house we managed to get $200 and they forced me to take them into my office where we got another $250. They beat me on the back and on my right hand. The right hand pain is still being dealt with by our lovely nurse Miss Kiiza Kahwa.“Everybody at the university was mobilized to help us in the house, but could not come near us because of the bullets they fired mercilessly on both of us and them. We were nine people, i.e., my wife Damalie, our boys Emmanuel and Kefa, and the girls, Nyangoma, Winnie, Esther, Mave and Adah. All of us would have lost our lives was it not the mercy of God on us! Praise be to Him! They entered our bedroom throwing bitter words on us to give money or else to die. Traces of 7 bullets were found in our house and other 4 fired outside to keep away the members of the community, students and members of staff. One hour after, the police being called by Revd Martin, the Academic secretary, came to realize what was there.“In spite of this incident, the university is still doing its work. As you know already, we organized five faculties in our university: Theology, Administration and Economic Sciences, Psychology and Education Sciences, Polytechnic (Civil Engineering) and Sciences (Mines and Geology). This academic year we will have about 70 students, of whom 11 from the theological faculty are graduating after their third year at university in the undergraduate level.“We also are happy to say that we have now produced two more doctors in theology, having finished in May and July 2012 in the Protestant University of Congo, Kinshasa. These are Revd Dr Yossa Way in Missiology and Revd Dr Kahwa Njojo in New Testament Theology. Ven. Sadiki Kangamina Christopher is also doing his PhD in Old Testament Theology at the Shalom University of Bunia. Revd Kamana Niyonzima is also doing his graduate studies at the same university in Missiology as well. We thank God for that.”CUAC’s General Secretary, the Revd Canon James Callaway, was present two years ago at the laying of the university’s foundation stone by Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams. Upon hearing of the attack, Canon Callaway noted: “The Anglican University has been a force for knitting community back together after the years of conflict in Congo, bringing together former victims and men who were drawn into the militias. As such it has been a vital force for peace, which now more than ever needs our support to continue.”Professor Sabiti reported that the attack spared the recently-installed Internet classroom, equipped last November under a grant from Trinity Church Wall Street, USA. Especially with a meagre library, this facility makes it possible for the university to keep up-to-date in information and in research, especially through the newly-initiated research Department, Centre de Recherche Interfacultaire de l’UAC, and the new Research Review called LUMEN: Revue Interfacultaire. Construction of a block of four lecture rooms under the sponsorship of the UK Congo Church Association continues, with roofing completed and installation of flooring underway.The war has not reached Bunia at present. Professor Sabiti said, “The only problem is the presence of the hors la loi entering people’s houses at night, killing and robbing goods and money. They are really creating insecurity in this town. There also the militiamen between Bunia and Boga in the Lendu Region who keep on looting people on the way in a sporadic way. We are really very sad about what is happening in and in the surrounding of Goma City in the North-Kivu Province. Please pray for our country and especially in this eastern part of the country. We need peace and freedom to work and to enjoy the wealth that our dear Father gave us here in our country, unfortunately smuggled by the outside.”On 14-15 December 2012 the second Administrative Council of the University met in Bunia, chaired by His Grace the Most Revd Henri Isingoma, Archbishop of the Province de L’Église Anglicane Du Congo and President of the university. Professor Sabiti concluded, “Without any doubt, the university is still functioning. Activities resume on 7th of January 2013, God willing. Please pray for us as usual, because the Evil One never stops to haunt us with his bitter arrows of affliction.” Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Albany, NY Submit a Press Release Rector Smithfield, NC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Anglican university in the Congo attacked Break-in resulted in damage, no fatalities Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Submit an Event Listing Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Knoxville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Bath, NC Rector Martinsville, VA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Shreveport, LAlast_img read more

The characterisation of the surroundings is clearly filled with rural aspects, revealing a low construction density, where the buildings rarely have more than a floor and are confronted with a vast and extraordinary natural landscape.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesThe house to be constructed intends to establish a visual relation with the surrounding landscape, mainly the castle and the astonishing valleys planted with olive trees or almond trees. On the other hand, in the centre of this terrain there is a particular pre-existence with rather interesting characteristics, both for its patrimonial nature, and for the beauty and interest in safeguard, which is the threshing-floor in stone – granite and slate, in pieces of huge dimensions and a rather interesting design. The threshing-floor itself has 15m by 15m.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesFor this reason, the intention is to set the house on a slightly higher level than this one, releasing it physically from the threshing-floor so that it wouldn’t pervert it and so that it can use it as a resting place, as an outside terrace, as a well-defined platform, whereby the house is implanted according to its measures and close to it, but with some formal autonomy at the same time.Save this picture!Floor PlanIt was also extremely important in the decision of its implantation the fact that the set would guarantee the maintenance of the majority of the trees, leaving the house surrounded by vegetation as it is possible to see in the photos of the existing.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesThis house is composed by one floor with the main entrance practically in the threading of the terrain’s entrance, although there are several windows that allow the direct access to the exterior.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesThe materials used on the exterior are: shale’s masonry identical to the one existent on the site, covering all of the structural walls; the white concrete for the lower and upper slabs that are visible; the concrete will be coffered with wood boards without any finishing so that it can be printed on it the wood’s texture.Save this picture!Sketch On the interior, the social zone works as a kind of open space and there is a franc division between this which is directly connected with the kitchen and the more private zona with three bedrooms, closets and bathrooms, being that the element that does this transition is a living room with a more intimate character. The fireplace’s volume does this separation, while connecting both rooms visually, since it works for both sides. This volume will have a particular protagonism in the space. Here there is also zenithal lighting, since it’s the most interior part of the houseSave this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesThe existing walls, traditional in this area of the country, are rehabilitated in all of the surrounding terrain. The lightness of the house is accentuated by its fragmentation on the four corners, asymmetric for different reasons, either looking for a landscape framing, due to the dominant winds or even sun exposure.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesProject gallerySee allShow less3 Architects Win President’s Designer of the Year Award in SingaporeArchitecture NewsFélix Guyon’s Sails Benches are Anchored in MontrealArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeCorreia/Ragazzi ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCastelo MelhorPortugalPublished on December 20, 2015Cite: “House in Castelo Melhor / Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos” 20 Dec 2015.

Day of Mourning: ‘We are not conquered. We are as strong as ever.’

first_imgThe 46th annual National Day of Mourning organized by the United American Indians of New England, rallied, marched and afterwards ate together in Plymouth, Mass. to debunk the hundreds-year-old racist myth about “Thanksgiving.” According to the organizers, a multinational, multi-generational crowd of 1,200, came from mainly the Northeast. Indigenous peoples performed a sacred ceremony and spoke in their own name on the historical genocidal treatment of Native peoples throughout the Americas since 1492 up until the present, along with ongoing resistance. The speakers were UAINE co-leaders, Moonanum James and Mahtowin Munro; Juan Gonzalez; Tiokasin Ghosthorse; Vanessa Inarunikia and elder, Bert Waters, who read a moving greeting from political prisoner Leonard Peltier. You can read the full speeches of James, Munro and Peltier at workers.org.

Hurt says Corn Producers Better Tighten Belts

first_img By Andy Eubank – Dec 18, 2013 Home Indiana Agriculture News Hurt says Corn Producers Better Tighten Belts Hurt on 14 corn productionThe next few years look to be challenging for Indiana farmers who grow corn, but Purdue University’s Dr. Chris Hurt told a crowd gathered at the state fairgrounds Wednesday that practicing moderation should help get them through a period of lower commodity prices.“I like us to be able to make these adjustments, tighten our belts, cut back here and there, find a way that most people can get through this and make the adjustments. I think if we do that over the next 2 or 3 years we can adjust, $4.50 corn, $11.00 beans, $6.00 wheat. Margins are going to be very tight so we’re telling producers to get your cost of production down to $4.50 or less. Purdue says it’s about $5.00 costs, so push that down any way you can.”Exactly where can costs be reduced? Fertilizer costs are already down about 20 percent. Hurt says there are other areas of cost cutting opportunities.“Some of the micro nutrients or foliar feeding, or some fungicides or some other applications, that they may cut back on some of that application. Then we think that there’s some opportunity probably on the seed side to try to negotiate maybe a little bit better prices there. It looks like fuel could be down a bit but that’s not a big cost item. Crop insurance looks like it will be down. You put all that together, and fertilizer is the big down, but then these others are little and not enough down for us to be raising this corn for $4.25 or $4.50 a bushel.”Then there’s cash rent. Hurt says it may be a difficult sell, but attempting to renegotiate lower rents might be necessary, especially so if there isn’t relief from higher prices by 2015. The Purdue Extension agricultural economist was the featured speaker at the HAT seminar at the Indiana-Illinois Farm Equipment Show. Marketing strategies for the coming year will be shared at the show Thursday at 11 AM by Jim Riley of Riley Trading.

ALERT: US – RSF urges authorities to determine if blogger Zachary Stoner’s murder is connected to his reporting

first_img RSF_en June 7, 2018 ALERT: US – RSF urges authorities to determine if blogger Zachary Stoner’s murder is connected to his reporting to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas Receive email alerts June 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation “RSF is deeply shocked by Zachary Stoner’s death and sends condolences to his family, friends, and those impacted by his work,” said Margaux Ewen, RSF’s North America Director. “Zachary gave voice to local musicians and reported on matters of public interest to those in his community. We are incredibly concerned about his murder and urge the authorities to investigate whether it was related to his work as a journalist.” Though most of Stoner’s work as a video blogger was related to Chicago rap musicians and local gang members, Stoner had received threats related to his coverage of Kenneka Jenkins, a young woman who was found dead in a walk-in freezer at a Chicago hotel in September. Though the death was ruled an accident, it prompted social media attention and numerous conspiracy theories. Stoner conducted interviews with Jenkins’ friends and before he published the videos to his YouTube channel, “ZachTV1,” he received a warning from an anonymous caller in October to “leave the case alone…for your safety.” Stoner said he initially didn’t publish the interviews because his house had been broken into, his camera equipment stolen, and he was receiving threatening phone calls and emails. But in late November, he finally posted them online. The United States ranks 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.

They were, in some way, thrown into the fire from day one.“We were down to 20 kids and out of those 20, six were freshman,” Ibarra said. We didn’t think they were physically or mentally ready to play varsity football. You take those six (freshman) out and we only have 14 players, and we didn’t feel comfortable putting them out there in a position to get hurt.”Solling was born in the U.S., but raised in Denmark, where he played football and his father is a professor at the Univ. of Copenhagen.The 15-year old quarterback acknowledged he spent a lot of time on his back and that his body has been sore from time to time, but Solling said “100 percent” of his teammates wanted to continue the season.“We didn’t like getting blown out and we did take a beating, but that’s football,” Solling said. “You take hits. You get sore, but we loved being out there and competing. I think it was a bad decision and I feel especially bad for the seniors who’s careers are over because someone decided to take them away.”Pasadena Unified School District athletic director Gilbert Barraza put out a statement and spoke with Pasadena Now on Monday.“We’re going to help (Principal) Mr. Ibarra rebuild his program,” Barraza said. “They didn’t have a freshman or JV football team, they just had varsity, and the athleticism the freshman must have to compete would be incredible. We met with the community and parents and administrators. Safety is an utmost concern. They had been blown out and injuries are part of the game, but when you only have 20 kids, they have to be protected.”We reached out to the CIF-Southern Section and Director of Communicatons, Thom Simmons said this type of move is nothing unusual, and that Blair opponents would receive wins by forfeit over the final four weeks of the regular season.Barraza also said the players would continue to practice and work on strength and conditioning and then next year, Blair hopes to put out a junior varsity squad.Barraza made it clear that the “1st priority is to build up to Varsity with baseline of JV.”But what does that mean for current varsity players?“I am looking at different schools (locally), because I played competitive football in Denmark and I don’t want to go backwards and play JV football next year” Solling said. “They talk about putting the freshman in harm’s way, but the freshman players were better than most of the older guys and they could protect themselves.”Blair has already deleted the last four games of their schedule on the prep information site MaxPreps.
